What to look for in a Pond Building Contractor

You’ve probably seen waterfalls you liked in nature, neighborhood entrances, or maybe a friend’s pond or water feature. And you’ve wondered about exploring options for having one built in your yard. Luxurious water features add that resort feel to any property. Yet, you wonder what questions you should ask when searching for your pond building contractor?

As with any contracted service, consider specifics about the company background such as:
-Is the contractor licensed and insured?
-How many years of experience do they have building water features?
-Does the contractor provide candid client testimonials?
-What are past clients saying in their google and other reviews?
-How do they rate with the Better Business Bureau?

Those sorts of questions are an excellent start to narrowing the selection process in identifying a qualified pond building contractor.

-Do they have photos and videos demonstrating the types of water features they typically build?
-What is their design consultation process? Can they meet with you in-person, via an online app such as zoom if you are traveling or unable to meet in person?
-Are they experts in applicable area building regulations?
-Do they have expertise in the permitting process?
-Do they own the proper construction equipment to complete a project of your complexity?
-Do they have reliable relationships for acquiring the necessary building materials and equipment unique to creating a healthy ecosystem pond such as Aquascape Inc?
-Have they received approvals from your Home Owners Association (HOA) for other pond building construction projects that they satisfactorily completed?
-Can they complete your water feature when you want it for a price you can afford?
-Do they provide quality guarantees?
-How long before they start the pond building after you sign the contract?

Ponds, waterfalls, and water features of every sort imaginable are an investment that enhances your quality of life when appropriately built by experienced and reputable pond building contractors. We encourage you to shop around and consider contractors’ reputations, knowledge, experience, and generally if you like and trust them in deciding to have them build the pond of your dreams.
